Very nice! What's the brand of the inline CO2 reactor?

Ista. It's not particularly well constructed(hard to disassemble for cleaning), but I had a tough time finding one that would be compatible with my hosing.

A) Some blue, some yellow

C) Blue + yellow = green
D) LA Rams uniforms

Hey @JCole2014, wanted to let you know that the Ista in line reactor is now out of commission. I noticed it started a slow drip leak, so I disconnected to clean it and re-apply plumber's tape before reattaching the screw-on top. The design is not too smart. You need to insert the top of the spiral white plastic auger into a small hole in the lid to hold it in place. But the body is opaque where the auger slides into the small hole, so you can't see if it's lined up in the hole. I screwed the lid on and since it wasn't lined up properly, a little piece of the auger broke off. Now the whole thing is useless, as you can't buy a replacement part. Buyer beware.

Wow, thanks for the follow-up.

I'm leaning towards the DIY method, although my current CO2 Art inline diffuser is working just fine. Maybe when I get a bigger tank and need the CO2 to dissolve better!
